A handicap card is required if a swimmer enters a BBB event or a Handicap (HCP) event at a carnival. These events are normally held during meets in the summer season at country carnivals. Swimmers enter these races in order to win medals in events which are not based on the fastest time completed (the playing field is levelled).
Please ensure you refer to the Handbook for the events list, as the events may not have HCP or BBB listed in the event description when entering online.
White cards are available from the Nominations Officer and are in the pocket on the pool deck noticeboard and should be completed as per these instructions:
Please note that times achieved in handicap or BBB events are not official and are not recorded on the National results database.
The Nominations Officer will complete these cards for any teams entered in Handicap Relays and give them to the Team Manager for the carnival.
If you have any further questions, have a chat with an experienced parent, a Committee member or email the Nominations Officer at firstname.lastname@example.org
